A few things come to mind.
1. You could have some hardware issues. Maybe try the install CD on another unit, see if the install proceeds. If it does then you may have some incompatible hardware on your unit.
2. Maybe the CD is a bad burn, perhaps turn down the burn rate and also check your md5 checksum.

You can also try to debug the install process by switching to the virtual terminal that shows the kernel log. I think that vt4 shows the kernel log on the debian installation cd. To see it, hit alt+F4. If it isn't there, try other alt+Fx combinations (I think only F1-F5 are working on the install cd). To get back to the install screen, hit alt+F5 (again, I am not sure if it is F5 or something else. If it isn't, try another Fx key).

If you see any strange message there, tell us.

Have you tried selecting "hardware clock" or "local clock" during installation to use the bios clock instead of an internet time server?.

Was the install a network install?

If not, there may be some network connectivity issues with the installer, especially if you have a wireless connection. As the previous responder suggested, check the install log, and also use 'ps -ef' to view the running processes.
